Fun with Color.

The goal of Idée Inc. is to make images searchable by developing advancing image identification and visual search software. These are the amazing minds that created TinEye. If you are not familiar with TinEye, it is a reverse image search engine. This means you can submit an image to TinEye to find out where it came from and where it is being used. Pretty much, it is like a Google image search, but you input a picture instead of text. Ah-mazing.

Now Idée has created something called Multicolr Search Lab and it’s an amazing color tool that’s really great for creating color theme boards. It’s as simple as clicking on color swatches and Multicolr Search Lab pulls various Flickr images that contain your chosen colors.

Here are some examples of color boards I’m made using the program:

 Multicolr Search Lab   Idée Inc.4

 Multicolr Search Lab   Idée Inc.6

Multicolr Search Lab   Idée Inc.5

I can see this free tool really coming in handy for creating color palettes and harmonious color schemes. Give it a try. And have fun!
